Tomorrow at 10am I will be interviewed on the radio show Resilience is the Brilliance! The intent of the show is to inspire women who are stuck in their own limitations, wishing life would be different but don’t move forward. This show is meant to share stories of women that have overcome, lack of confidence, fear, lack of education, lack of experience or any other limitations that will inspire others.

I left a comfortable life of nursing and real estate because I was over looked for a well deserved promotion, to follow my dreams! There have been ups and downs, but over the last ten years we have made our business, CVC Catering Group, what it is today.

Here is an outline of some of the questions I will be asked;

  1. What is your favorite success story you can share?
  2. What were your life experiences up until the time you began your business or career?
  3. Did you have heroes or heroines growing up and how did they effect or influence your adult path?
  4. How did you feel about your life? Motivation, Struggles, disappointments, high points, low points, etc…
  5. What was your “why” for starting a business? Was it your idea? Someone else’s idea, Money, fame, helping, etc…?
  6. What has been the funniest turn of events in owning your business?
  7. Did the “why” turn out to be the real why or did you discover a much deeper purpose or outcome?
  8. What do you know now that you wished you knew when you were 20-years-old?
  9. What were the hurdles you had to overcome to make your business a success? Prejudice, no life, no time, opposition?
  10. Are you glad you did it? Is it worth it? Why? Are you able to enjoy your business? Integrate a purposeful life?
  11. How did you benefit? Community, personally, self esteem personal growth?
  12. What are some of the pitfalls to watch out for? Arrogance, complacency, lost sight of who you are?
  13. If you got off track, how did you get yourself back on the right track?

For many years I dreamed of becoming a caterer. Finally in 1999 Chuck and I moved to Maine and started our business full time. I realized that I achieved my dream and was actually living it and having fun as hard as the work is.

In 2002 I decided that I wanted to cater something big – just like Wolfgang Puck. I decided it would be great to cater Chelsea Clinton’s wedding when she became engaged. Now is the time!

If you know the Clinton’s or have a insight into how I might get a shot at this dream, please contact me!

I am star struck! We had so much fun listening to Paula and her band practice prior to her concert at The Landing at Pine Point. She has so much energy. The lighting system is incredible too.

I prepared a spinach and feta pie that was a big hit for their dinner prior to the concert.  Try the recipe:

Your favorite pie crust recipe

2 eggs

3 packages of fresh baby spinach, sauteed and drained thoroughly

15 oz ricotta cheese

8 oz crumbled feta cheese

1 tsp finely grated lemon peel

1/4 tsp of freshly cracked pepper

1/8 tsp of nutmeg

Beat eggs and stir in other ingredients until mixed well.

Place in pie plate over pie dough. Cover with pie dough to make a pie.

Bake 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until golden brown.


Paula took the leftovers home!

Last weekend we catered the grand opening at The Landing at Pine Point! We are excited to add this venue to our The Landing at Pine PointThe Grand opening of The Landing at Pine Pointlist of approved venues!

Check it out. it is a beautiful venue renovated from an old church. It is charming and stat of the art!

Now that spring is in full gear, I like to make lighter foods to eat. I came across this recipe on the internet:

I added finely chopped ginger and lime juice along with the juices of the citrus fruits I used. I used Tangelo, Ruby Red Grapefriot and Oranges. I did not use the dressing in the recipe.

Wow what flavor! Simple and clean tasting. Sweet and spicy!

Try it and see what you think!

Bon Apetite!
